Travel Bags

I sewed this set of travel bags using some vintage sheets that my boyfriend's mother gave me.  She had held on to them since the '70s. Love. Them. The top sheet was pristine but the fitted sheet was threadbare in areas.

There is a duffle bag that holds tall items, a cosmetic bag, a bag that I use to hold jewelry, and a tissue holder.

I machine quilted all around the flowers to give the fabric some structure and lined all the bags.  I drafted my own patterns. 

I'm planning to make a zippered bag at some point, large enough to hold adequate clothing for a weekend getaway, I travel light.
